I count at least one TEAC user in the bug, I have a TEAC SCSI drive
lying around if I can find it I'll test to confirm. Regardless Plextor
is a well known brand which has seen a lot of deployment.

It _is_ the kernel, we limited the commands we can send as users to
disallow say a local user to flash the firmware and do damage. We are
NOT asking you to ship an old kernel, that is an absurd suggestion which
nobody proposed. There has to be an acceptable solution but despite
asking for suggestions none has been proposed.

I've been asking the same thing for ages mate, the lovely DaveJ hasn't
been very responsive aside when he rejected the bug for FC5 and I'm just
a mindless tester.

Nor have any of the suffering users been asked for additional
information so I doubt any of us have a decent idea where to begin or we
would probably have started poking around rather than doing those nasty
suid hacks.
